Item Details

"Just a generation ago, this place was called America. Now, after the worldwide implementation of a UN-led program called Agenda 21, it's simply known as "the Republic." There is no president. No Congress. No Supreme Court. No freedom. There are only the Authorities. Citizens have two primary goals in the new Republic: to create clean energy and to create new human life. Those who cannot do either are of no use to society. This bleak and barren existence is all that eighteen-year-old Emmeline has ever known. She dutifully walks her energy board daily and accepts all male pairings assigned to her by the Authorities. Like most citizens, she keeps her head down and her eyes closed. Until the day they come for her mother."--Dust jacket.

The most amazing thing about this book is that Beck got 1736 readers to write short reviews of the book on the Amazon website.

No matter what you think of his writing itself, this book is an eye-opener. Check out all of the data available on the web, and take a look around. It's like ... deja vu

I think my previous comment was deleted, but I"ll say if you care about America and freedom, you should read this book. It is NOT far off and the guy is NOT a nut. Agenda 21 is a real UN proposition or plan. Very scary stuff. If you have not been paying attention to what is happening in this country, this should wake you up. The book reads great! Hard to put it down. It is not your usual plot, but you're immediately drawn into the characters and the siutation. Give it try. I think you'll find it fascinating, especially when you read the afterward. I give it five stars.

I read Glenn Beck, but only non-fiction, so I had no idea what to expect. After I started reading, I couldn’t put the book down and read half of it in one sitting. “Citizens have two primary goals in the new Republic: to create clean energy and to create new human life.” Like Brad Thor, I (very humbly) compare this book in importance to 1984. Like in Orwell’s reality-based fiction, Agenda 21 tells the tale of a leftwing, fascistic society, where Mother Earth has priority over human beings. But unlike the dystopian fiction “The Handmaid’s Tale,” where rape is described and it is still considered appropriate for minors, Glenn Beck’s 122 book copies will certainly never find a place in the Young Adult area of any library. I found many similarities with our reality: children being brainwashed by the State (think “public” education/libraries); harsh government rules/regulations crippling the economy; the life of animals/plants held in higher regard than humans; energy-generating bicycles (Ed Begley comes to mind); people wanting government to take care of them (Welfare, Food Stamps, Medicare, Medicaid comes to mind); recycle-mania; petroleum-phobia (hello, Daryl Hannah!); manipulation of historical facts (hello, world media!); the utopian idea of equality (yeah, it worked so well in Russia); etc, etc, etc. Beck clearly did in-depth research on the agenda of Agenda 21. If you can’t put politics and your dislike of the author aside, read at least the book’s Afterword: you will learn facts that will send cold shivers down your spine. And if you still think Beck is just a nut job and the UN’s Agenda 21 is well meant, check the links I posted in A REVIEWS XV. Once can’t deny facts—well, at least not yet…

No real plot to speak of. More a political and social commentary disguised as a novel but one that dragged on and on.

Fascist propaganda.

This story is absorbing, gripping, and sadly prescient. Like 1984 and Animal Farm, it should be read by anyone who cares about the future of our country. Call me Cassandra.

One must feel sorry for the co-writer, having to work with this insufferable self absorbed blowhard.

“ABSOLUTELY STUNNING! AGENDA 21 is more frightening than anything Orwell could have envisioned. It is the ULTIMATE THRILLER, capturing our darkest fears in a BRILLIANTLY WRITTEN, exhilarating, pulse-pounding adventure. If this is what the future holds, I don’t want to live to see it; I want to live to fight it! AGENDA 21 IS THE 1984 OF THE 21ST CENTURY.” Brad Thor

"Effective execution of Agenda 21 will require a profound reorientation of all human society, unlike anything the world has ever experienced a major shift in the priorities of both governments and individuals and an unprecedented redeployment of human and financial resources. This shift will demand that a concern for the environmental consequences of every human action be integrated into individual and collective decision-making at every level." The Earth Summit Strategy to Save our Planet, by Daniel Sitarz.

News story from 1/22/13--40th anniversary of Roe v Wade
And so it is happening already~~

"Japan's new government is barely a month old, and already one of its most senior members has insulted tens of millions of voters by suggesting that the elderly are an unnecessary drain on the country's finances.

Taro Aso, the finance minister, said on Monday that the elderly should be allowed to "hurry up and die" to relieve pressure on the state to pay for their medical care. . . ."
